© Guido Häfner
Guido Häfner was born in 1968 in Oberfranken, Bavaria. His apprenticeship as a precision mechanic followed studies at the Technical University of Munich. Häfner’s sculptures reduce bodies and faces to their essential elements. In this way, the artist creates unique and everlasting expressions of eruptive elements of movement.
His „Archetypal Heads“ create their own space in space through the perfect visualization of the three dimensions. This works equally impressively in indoor spaces, as well as in nature.
POLISHED STAINLESS STEEL & CORTEN STEEL
Häfner creates his sculptures (approx. 30 cm to several meters high) in two basic variants. Polished and ground stainless steel for indoor use, and Corten steel for outdoor use, which, according to his own statement, allows the sculpture to „age in dignity.“
WORKS IN PUBLIC COLLECTIONS
His sculptures are in numerous collections. These include the Art Collection of the German Bundestag, the Berlin Foundation of Preußischer Kulturbesitz, the Goethe Institute in Taiwan, Abu Dhabi and Sweden, and Gutenberg Museum in Mainz. In addition, his works can be found in various public places.
My outdoor corten steel sculptures transform from year to year. This gives them the opportunity to age in dignity.
